Abstract

Manfred Kets de Vries, one of the pioneers in the field of global leadership, was interviewed on the topic of global leadership development. He described various intervention techniques he utilizes in his Challenge of Leadership program at INSEAD – a year-long seminar aimed at CEOs – that include exercises, life case studies, 720-degree feedback instrumentation, and the use of the group coaching intervention technique to create a “transitional space” or safe environment where senior executives can be both vulnerable and honest; a place where they can experiment with new ways of dealing with their world. Kets De Vries’s reliance on psychodynamic-systemic concepts, given his background as a psychoanalyst and management professor, was also explored. In addition, he discussed the future of global leadership development and the role business schools can play in producing global leaders.
